iCUE Software


Once the software is installed, after choosing the device to address from the main menu, we arrived at the profiles tab. With a list of profiles that do not go to this product, we are able to click on the plus icon near the top, and add as many profiles as needed. Of course, only one can be stored on the M55 RGB PRO at a time, but they can be stored on the PC to easily swap them out dependent on usage and need. Once created and named, you can link it to a program, create a custom icon, add a background image, even blur it or change its transparency.


The actions menu covers a lot of options for customization. You can click on the buttons around the image of the mouse to start this process, and once the button is picked, you then go to the bottom menu. We have the Macro menu open, which has all the options one could ever need, but there is still more.

By clicking on the dropdown menu, there are thirteen additional ways to look at changing what each button can do, everything from remapping, to multimedia, even keyboard presses can all be swapped into the default functions of seven of the eight buttons, as the left click button is not addressable.


Moving on to the lighting effects, this is where you can change the way in which the RGB zones illuminate. Notice that iCUE shows just one zone for this section, the logo. Using the dropdown, you will find seventeen options, but with the AIO in use, we matched the pattern of it to Rainbow so that all of the Corsair devices in use match. You may also change the modes or color based on what program is used, and you can even stop the lighting based on a key press or a key being released.


The DPI section is where the DPI levels can be changed. What is shown at the bottom are the default settings, and any or all of them can be adjusted in 200 DPI increments. You also can see that each DPI level has a color associated with it, and while any static color is an option, the modes from the previous menu are not.


The performance tab offers very little as far as changeable options. While we can view one of two images of the M55 RGB PRO displayed in the larger section above, all you can do here is tick or untick enhanced pointer precision, which is active by default, but you also get a slider for pointer speed.


The last thing in iCUE that pertains to the M55 RGB PRO is found by selecting the settings tab found across the top of the window. Once ticked, it is where you can enable left-handed mode, enable all of the side buttons, change the polling rate, the LED brightness, change the mouse color in the software images, or update the firmware, of which we are on the latest. The lower section allows options as to what iCUE can do, but is not specific to the mouse.
